National Organic Combinable Crops (NOCC) 2017

On Thursday 6 July 2017, OF&G will be holding their annual National Organic Combinable Crops (NOCC). The event will take place at an organic arable farm in Hampshire.

NOCC is the largest UK on-farm event in the organic calendar. It features panel discussions with experienced industry professionals talking crop varieties, latest agricultural equipment, weeds, seeds, soils, product quality, routes to market and more.

ORC will be there, and we have been planning the crop itinerary to include some ancient wheats (from the Diversifood project) in the autumn cropping such as einkorn and emmer. We will also be involved in spring crop planning and will lead a station on the farm walk engaging farmers over their 'impressions' and scoring of the crop species/varieties.

This is a hugely popular event and tickets will be released early 2017. More information at http://ofgorganic.org/events/national-organic-combinable-crops-nocc-2017/
